to give up her seat on a montgomery, alabama bus, the civil rights pioneer, rosa parks makes history again becoming the first african-american woman to have a statue in the capital. >> rosa parks singular act of disobedience launched a movement. the tired feet of those who walked the roads of montgomery helped a nation see that to which it had once been blind. >> at the same time, across the way at the supreme court, conservative justices signal the landmark 1965 voting rights act may have outlived its time. veterans say it's still critical. >> there's still forces in this country that want to take us back to another period. we are not going back. we have come too far. we made too much progress to go back. >>> in rome today, a farewell message from the pope as 150,000 people packed st. peter's square to witness history before pope benedict steps down tomorrow. >>> tackling gun violence. the father of a sandy hook victim. >> it's hard to be here to talk about my son, but i have to. i'm his voice. i'm not here for the sympathy and a pat on the back as many people stated down in newtown. i'm
